Monica City Council.
Santa Monica City Council has a history
of being fiercely independent and
progressive. Engaged with an equally
active community, City Council has
through the decade's garnered national
interest from all sides of the political
spectrum with various laws and ordinances
City Council is comprised of 7 members
who are elected to overlapping 4-year
terms with elections held every two
years. The Council selects one of
its members to serve as the Mayor,

Council meetings. In addition to establishing
local policies and laws, the Council
appropriates funds for all aspects
of City operations.
